Sydney and New York – June 19, 2018 - Local Measure, the leading location-based customer experience platform, announced the launch of Pulse, a new real-time feedback tool for the hospitality, tourism and retail industries. The product has been designed to help businesses collect feedback from on-site customers so that businesses can immediately action any issues, thereby improving bottom line metrics like NPS and thwarting negative reviews.
Pulse allows businesses to trigger a customer feedback request at specific moments during their journey. These moments can include when customers log-in to Wi-Fi, in the hours after arrival, or when presented with a feedback link/QR code. The interface for Pulse is powerfully simple and unobtrusive, providing the customers with the opportunity to submit a single 5-point rating that represents their current level of satisfaction. Customer details and comments are then requested so that issues can be resolved immediately by staff on the ground.
The ability to immediately action customer feedback is what sets Pulse apart from other feedback tools and surveys. The Local Measure mobile app allows front-line staff to be notified of customer responses as they come, and to mark each response as actioned once resolved. The system thereby empowers staff on the ground to truly own the customer experience, boosting customer satisfaction and reducing negative reviews both at the level of the individual business and across the enterprise.
Hotels have been the first industry to embrace Pulse. Benjamin Krieg, General Manager of Novotel Bangkok Sukhumvit 20, has found the tool to be transformative: “I think Pulse is one of the best customer service tools we have added into our business in years.”
Jonathan Barouch, CEO of Local Measure, explains “By the time a business has sent a post-visit customer survey, it’s simply too late to make a difference for that customer or to shape their impression. Pulse gives control back to front-line teams to take action on feedback in the moment and drive a better experience for the customer.”
Local Measure partners with Cisco’s wireless technologies, as well as IBM Watson Customer Engagement and Salesforce to provide end-to-end customer experience solutions for its clients. The company’s integration capabilities mean that customer feedback can be used intelligently by organizations and shared at an enterprise level.

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?
